Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will resign from all other ministerial positions he holds but remain premier, his lawyers said Thursday, APA reports citing Israeli media.


The court had received a petition from the Movement for Quality of Government in Israel (MQG) demanding that Netanyahu, who is also minister of agriculture, diaspora, health and welfare, step down from all his positions.

On Thursday submission to the court, Netanyahu's legal team said: "He will cease being a minister by Jan 1, 2020 and appoint other ministers instead."

"The prime minister will continue to be prime minister, as per the law," attorneys Avi Halevy and Michael Rabello said.
